Great alternative I had doubts about digital magazines but can see me getting into it. I've been a big TF fan for years but found I couldn't find opportunities to read it as much these days but now I have it with me wherever I go. For those who don't like the idea of having to pan and zoom there is a nifty text view mode that presents articles as a web page with one main image and the rest of the text scrolling down the screen which is great tho if u keep this mode on you may miss side articles. I still really like it.
Hello Digital life! Total Film is a really good read at the best of times but the annual digital subscription price of £12.99 is simply fantastic! Easy to navigate with high resolution photos, the magazine looks great on my Nexus 7. Unlike other magazines, it's not stuffed full of adverts (although some are present of course). I hope other magazines will follow this kind of pricing and quality.
It's okay. I've always liked TF yet find the digital version disappointing. It's basically just a scan of the mag yet I would have expected a real digital edition (full screen, text reflow, hyperlinks for trailers etc) from a well renowned publication. Not that my lone opinion will carry too much weight but unless the game is upped, I won't let my yearly subscription roll over it's first year. People should demand a better product, else we'll never see it. On a side note, Total Film is an awesome magazine.
7" tablet too small I really tried to read two issues of this excellent magazine, but I could not get on with the formatting on the Nexus 7. I found that I had to zoom into the page to read the text, and then scroll round to try and follow the text flow. I think this is a missed opportunity - the table of contents could hyperlink to the stories, and the text could autofit to the page, but instead the app is just a series of pictures of the paper magazine layout - trying to read the 100 greatest heroes and villains was impossible. eMagazines have to be the future - a cheaper subscription than the paper edition and instant delivery, but for me, this needs more work. Shame - great magazine, I will subscribe again when I get a 10" tablet.
Good Good good good good good Good good good good good night afternoon evening.......t.c.
Other mags pay attention Great price for buying online. If this high quality mag can do it most of the bigger guys should at least start getting close (Men's Health £3.99?? That's what is cost in shops. No savings in printing and distribution???). Well let's hope this price lasts and others follow soon. Oh yea love the mag, great writing and photography. Keep up the good work.
